5 Healthcare Tech Trends to Watch in 2021 | Unthinkable

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is making a positive contribution to healthcare during the pandemic. Through phone calls, emails, mobile apps, and even video chat, health care professionals can diagnose and treat patients remotely. It can lower healthcare costs, drive up efficiency and revenue, and provide patients with better access to healthcare services.

3D Bioprinting

Healthcare tech makes use of 3D bioprinting to generate living tissues to study and examine the molecular basis of diseases by testing the printed models. This technology is highly effective in studying terminal diseases such as cancer and tumour. Globally, the 3D bioprinting market is forecasted to touch $1.8 billion by 2027.

Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine informatics is essential to integrate big, complex datasets to implement nanoparticles in living organisms at the nano level. It helps in laboratory research and to intelligently deliver drugs throughout the body. Even nanorobots are useful in drug delivery and disease monitoring after being injected into a patient’s bloodstream. The nanomedicine market’s global usage is expected to grow from $111.912 billion in 2016 to $216.063 billion by 2023.

Artificial Intelligence

This technology is designed to mimic human cognitive processes. Some of the most popular examples are IBM Watson and the GNS Healthcare AI system to search for cancer treatment. Google’s DeepMind has built AI and mobile apps that mine medical data to improve hospitals’ and health care professionals’ care delivery to patients. The Al health care market is projected to grow from $667.1 million in 2016 to $7988.8 million in 2022.

Cloud Computing

With the development of healthcare technology, cloud computing aspects in the medical field are projected to rise from $20.2 billion in 2017 to $35 billion in 2022.

Genomics

Genomics investigates how a person’s biological information can improve their clinical care and health outcomes through effective diagnosis and personalized treatment. It can be used as a screening tool to characterize health conditions and select the right medicines, including therapies designed to target diseases.

Conclusion

The holistic digital transformation of healthcare firms is the biggest trend for the next year. Whether telemedicine, AI, or Cloud computing, everything related to remote monitoring and data management will peak in the upcoming year. Additionally, targeted and personalized care for critical diseases will be another trend that is likely to increase even more in the coming years.
